Tests for evaluating incontinence include endoanal ultrasound (EUS) and anorectal manometry. We hypothesized that EUS would be superior to anorectal manometry in identifying the subset of patients with surgically correctable sphincter defects leading to an improvement in clinical outcome in these patients. The purpose of this study was to compare these 2 techniques to determine which is more predictive of outcome for fecal incontinence. Thirty-five unselected patients with fecal incontinence… CONTINUE READING
